It’s come to our attention here at the blog that we haven’t written about the airport in a little while. Obviously this needs to be rectified, because as it turns out everyone else is writing about the airport these days. As you may remember, we wrote about the opening of Terminal B at Punta Cana International Airport back in October, and things are going even better than we expected. Let’s talk a little bit about what you can expect from the now established Terminal B and what the future holds for it.
Like we mentioned last time we checked in, Terminal B has a lot of the quality of life improvement we wished more airports had. Since the driving force behind this expansion has always been the travelers both to and from Dominican Republic, it should come as no surprise that we have done our best to accommodate and anticipate the needs of those travelers. We went into these in a bit more depth in our last post, but some of the things we are most proud of are the multiple charging stations for passengers, as well as the sustainable design of the terminal and ample space for visitors.
Another aspect of the airport that has received attention lately is the cargo facilities at Punta Cana International. A lot of tourists are probably unaware of this, but more and more businesses are using the airport as a hub for cargo. Given that the Dominican Republic works as a nice middle point between South America and Europe, Punta Cana International is looking to capitalize on our excellent location with the addition of a 5,000 square meter facility to house cargo.
And, all of this is just the beginning. Given the flexibility with which the airport is run, improvements are able to be made more quickly than at almost any other airport in the world. After all, the Terminal B addition only took three months to go from the idea stage to the planning stage. We are able to move quickly here, and we are able to look at small improvements along the way while keeping our eyes on long term improvements in the future. Our Dominican Republic airport is always evolving, and we are going to keep improving it. The current goal is to reach 10 million passengers in the next decade, and we know we can reach that goal as long as we continue to make flying enjoyable for our guests.
